    Question Website Hosting Recommendations

    I'm looking for an inexpensive yet stable host to setup a basic e-commerce site. I've looked at godaddy.com but am not really convinced that they are my best option. I would prefer to use a host that has building tools available on the site, as it has been a long long time since I've built a site.

    Do any of you IT guys out there have any recommendations?

    Thanks!
    Dave

    Well both 1and1 and inmotion seem like pretty decent hosts. I like the hosting features of inmotion a little better, but their merchant account seems to be a little more expensive than 1and1.

    Who do you use as your merchant Ben?

    Is it complicated to use 3rd party merchant?

    I use In Motion with a PayPal account but I admit may not be the best method... But cheap.

    Would you mind giving me a link to your site?

    Do you feel your missing out on some business by only using PayPal?

    Ben,

    Is it possible to setup your site so that people don't have to register and login to purchase something?

    I didn't know you did. I'll have to talk to my buddy on that one. It certainly wasn't suposed to be that way. My friend is actually who is doing the web design, and hosting. I can hook you up with him if you want. He is cheap enough, and doesn't nail you on changes, or my favorite "Our server has been upgraded so we have to charge you... to keep your site up" another favorite of mine is "oh we own your website name you'll have to buy it if you want to host somewhere else".

    Not sure but I see a lot of small companies using PayPal as they are the cheapest, but admit get what you pay for.

    Link www.dvrblackbox.com or you could of gone to the forum joke area and work up for there. Clicking on the logo in the forum brings you back to main page. My joke link is in my signature "The Gateway"

    No other companies that I have dealt with. I used to be into computer repair, and networking (I owned the company), and I would hear those stories quit a bit. 1and1 has great tech support, but there billing department is a PIA. Just make sure you keep paid up, and its real smooth sailing. I messed up, and changed bank accounts, and didn't fix my billing with 1and1 so they were pretty uptight. The IT guys are great. Oh yeah real cheap too.

    Actually I am using my friend's hosting service. I am too burnt out on any sort of design software. I did it for a little while with Access and front page, but they have dropped from the scene. I understand HTML enough to play around with it, but I could not write code from scratch anymore. My friend uses PHP. I can't even read it as fast as he writes it. Seriously. His screen name here is coderjedi.

    He did all the video editing in this one. I think he used flash. I am too lazy to investigate.

    I don't know looked at it but not sure how much to remove in that file. If thats the file I thinking needs to be mod, and he does it for you do you think he could send that file to me also? Or do you think it's best to talk to him?

    I use http://www.angryhosting.com for quite a few sites.

    They are stable and fast but you gotta know what you are doing because the service is very basic. But you can get a decent amount of bandwidth for a few dollars a month.

    We all are talking about host if but if you like to move host because.... It's best to registrar your site with Net-Solutions doing so you can switch host at a drop of a hat. It's a different story if a host registered your site name, they can hold you up when switching.

    Angry Hosting cheap. ;)

    Yeah and it's honestly an exception to the rule "you get what you pay for". Service is beyond what alot of other places offer just, like I said, it's not for novices 'cause they don't have a live help line. That's why prices are so cheap. They cater alot to webmasters looking to manage multiple sites from a single account. I'm running 7 sites with them and the only unscheduled down time I have is when AT&T drops a digital trunk in the midwest somewhere.


    Oh and I use godaddy.com for domain name registration but angryhosting.com will do it too.

    Well I tell you price has something to due with it, but it doesn't tell the whole story as you know.

    I started with Yahoo, ok email setup sucks IMHO then they started with a very slow website.

    Switched to Startlogic ok at first then they too started with a very slow website. Setting up Emails where a dream over Yahoo. Was only with them for 7 days due to the website slowness issue. Very cheap as I believe it was $35 for a year, but couldn't live with them.


    Then switched to InMotion Email are also a dream, price was $9 a month paid yearly. Sweet over Yahoo which if I remember right was $11 a month. Always there with the tech support one two rings that's all American the guy which answer phone is the tech no transfer nothing. For the money I give it my "Best Bang for Buck" award.

    FWIW, I use this guy as well... thanks again, Ben ;).

    Very reasonable fees, not one episode of down time in almost a year, and he's always around if you have any questions. Hearty recommendation.
